Centennial Milestone: Celebrating 100 Years of Excellence With a New Wolf Designer Vignette

In September, our company will celebrate 100 years in business. And in anticipation of our 100th anniversary, we have just finished a complete renovation of the building. The all-new Wolf Designer Vignette is the finishing touch on our recently completed kitchen and bath showroom. Our showroom features the latest kitchen and bath design innovations, giving our customers an up-close and personal experience with the vignette.

Shaker-style kitchens are the epitome of timeless elegance, with a blend of traditional and modern elements. The timeless appeal and style of Shaker-inspired design is due in no small part to its clean lines, wooden texture, and refined look. The minimalist, functional lifestyle of 18th-century Shaker societies is the inspiration for today’s simple and sophisticated Shaker kitchens. According to Tom Hawley, these kitchens have stood the test of time because “they are grounded in the architecture of the Georgian era, a style which has bled into Victorian, Edwardian, and now modern architecture.”  

This left us with no choice but to incorporate elements of the Shaker style into our new showroom. We went with a simple paint-grade Brawny Full Overlay Shaker Door with Icy Avalanche Finish for the perimeter and a Maple Brawny Full Overlay Shaker Door with Buckskin Stain for the island. If you aren’t ready to switch to an all-wood kitchen, consider some of these options.

For example, the island in our Wolf Designer vignette is remarkably versatile and can give your kitchen this warm, homey feeling. It will also bring dimension and contrast to an all-white kitchen. You can also take this island to the next level by adding box column fillers on both ends with decorative door panel accents attached. These box columns will not only improve the aesthetic of the space but also provide more support for the countertop.

To create the look of a window, we centered the sink under a bold geometric tile backsplash. The border of the tile was trimmed in a black stone pencil, while 3” x  12” raised cream subway tiles in a herringbone pattern were used to fill in the remaining backsplash. For intricate designs like this, you should carefully choose your tile setter. We have been working with Ray Whoriskey of American Made Renovations for years, and he has never let us down!

As for the sink, we chose a Ruvati 30-inch Undermount Single Basin Workstation Sink in Stainless Steel. A colander, solid wood cutting board, folding rack, rinse grid, basket strainer, and drain cover were all included with this sink. For the faucet, we went with a Delta Trinsic Pull-Down Faucet in Black Stainless. Black stainless has become our new favorite finish for appliances!

Lastly, we chose Hardware Resources Sullivan Cabinet Pulls in Brushed Pewter for the cabinet hardware. These pulls are an excellent choice for larger cabinets and heavier drawers. They are also aesthetically pleasing and provide a better grip. Square pulls, like the Sullivan, go well with flat panel door styles. Keep in mind that you can mix and match hardware styles and sizes.
